    5. The cover is, of course, amazingly inaccurate and hilariously posed, as well as being a total lie about the contents This book is actually heavily researched historical novel with only short moments in which an engorged shaft rears forth and soft mounds are laved before dedicating 100 pages to debate about whether King Stephen can hold the North of England from Scotland s hordes Cadfael mystery readers take note, this historical novel takes place in the same tumultuous period of England s hist [...]

    6. This historical fiction had both too much history and too much fiction, and never really seemed to find its way Set during the Scottish invasions of Cumbria in the 12th century, the historical background seems badly written and difficult to follow At the same time, the fictional hero and leading lady seem randomly inserted and their scenes feel like a boring bodice ripper.

    9. While the characters are likeable and well developed, the story line felt like it dragged on If you really like English Scottish history, you might find it enjoyable, but I had to skip a number of pages.

    11. Despite the cover, this was quite a thorough examination of the Scots invasion of England in 1136 Most of the action takes place in and around a keep called Jernaeve that is situated atop a rock outcropping called Iron Fist, just a few miles south of Hadrian s Wall The holder of the keep and the farms and village around it is a young woman named Audis whose uncle manages the estate for her She is a gifted weaver and her wall hangings bring extra income She is also a healer Into her life comes Hu [...]

    12. This cover does not do this book justice as this is not a bodice ripper In fact had I seen this book in a book store I would have walked on by and that is a shame as I would have denied myself a very good book.Our heroine, Lady Audris weaves tapestries of outstanding beauty But her tapestries have, at times, foretold the future Whether this is because Audris is psychic or just very aware of what is going on around her you will have to read the book to find out.She is living in a highly defensibl [...]

    13. A romance with history, mystery, and some supernatural thrown in for good measure.

    14. I received an ARC of A Tapestry of Dream in the books I received for attending the Online Book Bloggers Conference The book is a reprint of a book first published in 1985 and the writing style is different from books being published today The style does not date the book A Tapestry of Dreams tells the story of Lady Audris who weaves tapestries that often hint at the future She is content to stay unmarried and let her Uncle control her estate until Hugh Licorne arrives Audris is everything that H [...]

I know I used to read Roberta Gellis way back in the early days of my historical romance obsession I think my Gram even read some of her stuff although with all the talk of shafts and nether lips, I m surprised she did Gram liked her romance regency style I hadn t read this one though I am always a sucker for history around the time of Stephen and Matilda Although no one will ever do it as well as Sharon Kay PenmanThis romance was sweet enough and I was very compelled by Hugh and his tale of bas [...]
